MOVE OVER KEANU REEVES!
54-year-old ‘Bird Box’ actress SANDRA BULLOCK was originally meant to land the role of Neo in ‘The Matrix’ instead of Keanu Reeves! Producer Lorenzo di Bonaventura says that they had such a hard time finding a male lead, that they considered Sandra Bullock!
Bonaventura said during an interview with The Wrap: “We went out to so many people I don’t remember. We were getting desperate. We went to Sandy Bullock and said ‘We’ll change Neo to a girl.’ [Producer] Joel Silver and I worked with Sandy on ‘Demolition Man’ and she was – and continues to be – a very good friend of mine. It was pretty simple. We sent her the script to see if she was interested in it. And if she was interested in it we would try to make the change.” Thankfully (or not thankfully, up to you) Sandra couldn’t fit ‘The Matrix’ in her schedule, and so producers ended up finding Keanu Reeves. Let us know: WOULD YOU HAVE LIKED SANDRA BULLOCK TO HAVE PLAYED NEO? HAVE YOU WATCHED THE MATRIX? LET US KNOW!
